I'm 14, and I'm using this poem as part of my essay on ghost stories. When
I first read it, I didn't quite understand it - I imagined it, but I didn't
understand what my thoughts meant. After reading it through a few times, it
became clear to me that there are several possibilities, not just one
particular one. My initial thought was that the persona's a ghost, he's
full of sorrow from the loss of his life, his family, his home that has now
been captured by nature. He's sad that the house has been left derelict,
no-one to care for it, but happy that he's still the only occupant, apart
from the two other ghosts, his family that also died.
It's very how Robert Frost has written this, I love the rhyming, the
pattern of the lines and the stanzas. In a way, I wish it could be more
clear, but then I like the mystery of it, it's so intriguing.

I don't know why people like the ones who last commented even bother.
Robert Frost was a great poet, and everyone stands to learn something from
his works. So if your not serious why comment at all?

I think all of Robert Frost Poems are great. I'm doing a project on them
with some of my friends and I can't decide which on to pick but otherwise
for that lady Samantha Kolar stop complaining people work long hours just
to write these poems so you can see them so stop complaining about the
grammer and suck it up would you like to spend all of your day writing
poems for other people to see? I don't think so and people can comment if
they want to

I hate you guys who cannot spell. It's really bumming me out. You all have
terrible grammar, too. Or maybe you're all lazy? Anyway, I agree with Edgar
Mujica. By "analyzing" it with phrases like, "I don't understand the poem,"
or "I read the poem and i believe it is very sad because of this poor ghost
struggling in his deression and lonelyness." Seriously, at least try to
"analyze" it in a way that's at least a little mature, or please don't
comment at all.

i think that most people who have commented on the this poem are blind to
its actual meaning, therefore, have come up with nonsense. To spoil a
masterpiece is to steal from its gravity. That's what you have done.
